Lovely cottage with everything you need

We had a lovely stay at Orchard Cottage and would consider returning. Rooms are spacious and the cottage is well equipped. Dawn the owner was welcoming without being intrusive. Somewhere to go to get away from it all.

Just what the doctor ordered

November 9th 2020

After a very long and frustrating year the stay at Mornacott was just what we all needed. We had a truly wonderful and relaxing stay in this beautiful cottage. So much attention to detail and everyone could not have been more friendly and helpful.


Perfect stay for the whole family

September 2nd 2019

The cottage is very luxurious with plenty of space for all three generations of the family. There’s so much to do onsite (Grandpa and our two oldest boys loved the fishing and we tried our hand a clay pigeon shooting) that we rarely left although one or two local pubs were really good and reasonably priced. This was our second visit and we weren’t disappointed. Highly recommended.



May 25th 2019

We had a wonderful week in the cottage a made full use of all of the activities on offer. Charles, the estate manager, took all of us clay pigeon shooting and quickly got us all on target. The cottage itself was lovely and light and airy with beautiful oak beams. It was very well equipped. The swimming pool was quite superb and spotlessly clean and we bought meat from the shop for barbeques and some wonderful sausages, bacon and eggs for our breakfast. What a treat! We usually try somewhere new every year but unanimously decided to book Mornacott again next before we left.


A very special birthday

February 9th 2019

We’ve stayed at Mornacott twice before but this time we booked two of the lovely cottages over a very cold January week for a big family birthday party. The cottages were beautifully warm (heated by the large biomass boiler that heats the whole place) and the lovely log burner in the cottage was probably only a luxurious decoration and certainly not needed but fun to relax in front of in the evening. It’s often difficult with these sorts of reunion to please everyone with the different ages involved but the children (from 5-16) loved the heated swimming pool and the games room and most of the adults enjoyed the lovely mapped out walks (even dragging some of the initially reluctant children on one or two of them). For the “big event” we used the magnificent entertaining barn. Joanna the chef cooked two sittings, one for the younger children who were then whisked away to a babysitter after their supper and another for the older children and adults. The meal, the crisp linen table cloths, fine china and cut crystal were all very spoiling and the dinner (nearly all of the ingredients coming from the estate farm) was superb. We cannot recommend Mornacott more highly. The facilities are excellent and the whole team really helpful. All of the arrangements (and we had loads of requests for the dinner!) were dealt with in a very efficient and friendly manner and the champagne (together with their normal “welcome pack”) was a thoughtful and much appreciated touch.

Great Week in A Great Location

April 29th 2016

We had a great week. Great location and close to beaches and other attractions. The children loved being on the farm and getting close to the animals and feeding them. The staff were very helpful and informative.

John 13-19 Feb 2016

Beautiful - Absolutely Beautiful!

April 29th 2016

The cottage was beautifully presented. The oak framed building was to a very high standard with all bedrooms being en suite. The under floor heating meant that although our stay was in February and it was very cold we were always very warm. The furnishings were most comfortable and the soft furnishings complemented the oak timbers beautifully. We were welcomed with flowers, a delicious cake and milk and eggs in the fridge. The property had plenty of outdoor seating and even a BBQ, although it was too cold to try these out. The open plan living space was large and well set out. Overall a beautiful cottage which could not be faulted and we really enjoyed our stay.

What More Could You Want?

April 29th 2016

A great place to stay, well equipped kitchen, comfy beds, lashings of hot water even with 8 of us staying. If you are looking for somewhere to stay with friends or family this is an ideal location with some lovely walks nearby. I would recommend a BBQ pack whatever the weather as they are delicious!

Andrea, 5-11 September 2015

Location Lovely Location

April 29th 2016

A lovely house in a beautiful location. A very well run organisation and we would recommend not only their own meat products but the chef cooking for you which was beautifully done. The night safari was also very well organised.

Keith 15-21 August 2015

Peace and Views

April 29th 2016

Orchard Cottage is a lovely property, fantastic interior and very clean. It's well equipped and an excellent size for 7 people, 4 of which were very busy children. Nice and quiet with lovely views especially the buzzards and wild deer, I would recommend highly.

Diana 1-7 Aug 2015

Absolutely Stunning!

April 29th 2016

Orchard Cottage at Mornacott is an absolutely stunning holiday cottage. The interior is finished to an extremely high standard and is luxurious and spacious throughout. The estate boasts truly beautiful scenery and the location is perfect for all of North Devon's main attractions. We will most definitely be staying here again!

Definitely Coming Back!

April 29th 2016

We had a terrific week at Mornacott. The children loved staying at the farm. They fell in love with the owner's Jack Russell called Patch - now they want a dog ! The walks from the farm were all excellent. Well marked maps with easy to follow instructions, and beautiful North Devon countryside. Really well equipped kitchen, and overall great accommodation. I cannot think of anything that you could add that hadn't been thought of! We would definitely go back.
